Dr. Gutiérrez holds competencies in animal reproduction and handling several reproductive biotechnologies, including reproductive ultrasonography, artificial insemination, estrus synchronization, superovulation, and embryo transfer, besides the whole package of in vitro embryo production (ovum pick up: OPU, oocytes evaluation, IVM, IVF, IVC, embryo cryopreservation) in addition, to an interdisciplinary approach to molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry through techniques such as FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorting), computer-aided sperm analysis (CASA), RT-qPCR, and immunofluorescence. His current leading research interest involves the cloning and modification of the genome of farm animals through gene editing. The applications of this technology include the identification of target genes for disease resistance and animal production, as well as the area of biomedical models in animals for the study of diseases that affect humans through CRISPR-Cas9 technology.
